Political Activism Challenges And Suggestions

Through the of results and analysis of the survey measuring students’ engagement in ElBaradei Campaign and its implications on the political environment of Egypt, a rather unfortunate conclusion is reached. We, AUC students, have a sever degree of political apathy at AUC among, which is caused by fear of governmental oppression. Moreover, the digital seem to provide less of a safe environment for AUC students to participate, since they are all without exception expressed worries about their online anonymity, and privacy. For more analysis on the implication of the problem of security an anonymity, please visit the findings section, and look at our “Political Activism and the Digital, Limitations and Suggestions”
Perhaps a way to overcome that, is for the political science departments to actually hold seminars to encouraging students to be politically active, and, have professors guide students to how to avoid government persecution while remaining active and engaged. There are a variety of ways through which the digital can also be a safe/safer place with methods such as changing the IP address and others. The digital venues at AUC along with those who are concerned with the engagement of the political body need to realize the shortage of activism that our students are at, and to engage the digital in overcoming it by delivering to the students the full potentials of such a technology.
AUC students who declared Digital political activism arrived that , in relation to ElBaradei issue, the Digital does translate into real life activism or even overcomes it, since it allows medium for discussion and political dialogue in large numbers of people, something that the security/emergency situation of Egypt today does not allow. However, online security and anonymity/privacy still continues an issue for these students, and, a teaching to avoid that could greatly increase the effect of digital political activism at AUC and boost its translation into real life activism.
